So, How Are We Doin'? Grade Novato Patch

We get our fair share of criticism — constructive and otherwise. But I'm curious to know if we're meeting your needs and what we can be doing better. Really.

Novato Patch has been making the rounds of local service clubs, business networking groups and schools in an attempt to reach out and establish real-world connections with our thousands of daily readers. Lots of questions from the public have been answered about the website, which turns 2 years old in November.

Now we ask you some questions: Are we getting you news you don't get elsewhere? Are we getting it to you in a timely fashion? What part of Novato Patch do you like the most? The least? (We can take it, gulp, really).

It is apparent we have an established following, and that you are a discerning, intelligent bunch. I'd like to know your thoughts on how we can give you even more of what you need in the course of your day — and no, we're not going to add a door-to-door bagel and latte delivery service. The model doesn't work that way.

But if there's anything else you think we should be doing, let me know in comments.

Great Job Brent. I particularly appreciate being informed about new restaurants and businesses opening in our town. Breaking news about accidents or bad Hwy 101 problems is also appreciated so that people can avoid those areas when necessary.

The Novato Patch has replaced the Marin IJ in our household. If only Get Fuzzy could be added:):)

Thank you, Brent, for the variety of subjects, on which we may choose to comment. We, the public, may agree to disagree on topics and perhaps come up with solutions of what may be in the best interest for our families, neighbourhoods, city, state, federal, and even global institutions. New ideas might transpire and make things better for our children, friends, and future. Progress in food, health, safety, education, technology, politics, science, horticulture, art, and music are but a few of the many articles, which Patch has for the public’s responses. Thanks again for the opportunity to be heard
